"Following hot on the heels of strong, idiosyncratic releases from Raz Ohara and Einzelkind, Plan K's Thunder EP is the latest offering from Get Physical's experimental sister imprint, Kindisch. Plan K is Umberto Saba and David Love Calo, friends who learned the art of DJing in Italian clubs like Cocorico in Rimini and Firenze's Tenax during the 1990s. The Thunder EP is their first release as Plan K. EP opener 'Thunder' blossoms from an abstract schaffel intro into trippy, organic boogie -- a gritty analog bassline provides the funk, while trippy effects and cut-up vocal samples cluster around the shrugging beat. This is heavy, heady summer music, as ideal for lounging in the sunshine as it is for getting down in the club or skanking down the street. A2 'No Inspiration' is, despite its title, very much inspired: live sounding drums, artfully deployed synths and horn stabs make this 21st century disco with real purpose and drive. The track concludes with a long, killer drum break that makes this an essential addition to the box for DJs of all persuasions. For 'King of Trans,' Plan K take a completely different approach: driven by a Can or Neu!-like motorik drumbeat and insistent one-note bassline, unlike 'No Inspiration,' this track does live up to its title, trapping the listener in its tight, edgy groove and refusing to let go. The EP closes with 'Bid for Freedom,' another crackling broadcast of retro-futurist dancefloor funk. Sample brass, techy edits and cyclical Italo-style synth motifs move the mind as well as the feet, as Plan K effortlessly collapse past, present and future."
